Today’s automation industry quiz question comes from the ISA Certified Control Systems Technician (CCST) program. Certified Control System Technicians calibrate, document, troubleshoot, and repair/replace instrumentation for systems that measure and control level, temperature, pressure, flow, and other process variables.

Which of the following parts of a globe valve serve the same purpose as the disk in a butterfly valve?
C) Packing rings
D) Packing flange
E) None of the above
The answer is B. In a butterfly valve, it is the disc that is the moving part that regulates flow volume and comes in contact with a stationary structure, the body, to terminate flow. In the globe valve, the plug’s movement performs these same functions. The other three choices are legitimate valve parts.
